March 26, 2011: Closing Region Ø Video Art Festival (more pics here)

At King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center at New York University

Our latest performance in NYC was really well received.  There was a great crowd who seemed to be completely mesmerized.  I had my first experience implementing and mixing surround sound.  (autographs were signed!)
